Concerts, quizzes and feasts for Team Link Sahara Desert Trek to benefit Prospect
Swindon Link’s Jamie Hill explains more…
Some of you may have read that Swindon Link has assembled a team including myself to cross the Sahara Desert next year, all to benefit Prospect Hospice.
You might think we’re idiots (especially me who’s approaching 50 and already sweating profusely at the thought) but at least we’re idiots doing it for a good cause and you don’t get better causes than Prospect Hospice.
Well, as part of that, having already paid for the trip ourselves, we need to raise a huge amount of money for the charity by Christmas.
So with that in mind, the team, including myself, Kieran McCarthy, Amy O’Reilly and Laura Johnson, hosted five different events this fall to help us with our fundraising efforts.
These include a party night at Pick Up Point in Devizes Road, a fundraising concert at Tier 3 on Commercial Road and three separate quizzes at Tuppenny in the Old Town.
The program of fundraising events is as follows:
Monday, October 24 at 7 p.m.
